Thank you Robert. I feel a bit frustrated as I have asked a friend who is a doctor in Thailand and also my doctor here in the USA and neither of them seem to know much about HIV transmission. Actually, it seems ridiculous to me that a doctor would know so little about the disease. Is it just the specialists that know a fair amount about HIV? The doctor wouldn’t even admit to me that it’s mostly gay men that get HIV. Why are doctors so ignorant when it comes to HIV?
Doctors are idiots, plus there is PC. Also doctors are trained to be paranoid, especially about sex. A lot of doctors are puritanical and do not like to discuss sex. If you talk about sex with a doctor in or out of their office, mostly you just get a scary rundown on all the diseases you can get and how dangerous sex is. Doctors only see the downside of things.
Also there is a lot of PC that says that heterosexual men are just as at risk as anyone else. A lot of this was done as a blatant political move by the cynical gays, because they knew that if was seen as a gay disease hardly anyone would want to spend much money on the disease.
They were afraid the attitude would be: “It’s a fag disease – Who cares? Let the queers die – Haha. The fags are going to have to die then. Haha!” I have had straight people tell me all of these thing with a straight face, often laughing. So you see homophobia can be almost negligently homicidal. Queers know this and don’t trust us, and I do not blame them. So the cynical queer game was to lie and say that everyone was at risk, including straight people for whom the disease could go like wildfire in the straight population just like it does in the gay population from:
woman -> man -> woman -> man and on and on.
man -> woman -> man -> woman and on and on.
The truth is that in the straight community the disease goes:
Needle or Man -> Man -> Woman -> Transmission stops.
No one wants to believe that because everyone is PC, and also people want to believe that even straight sex is very scary and risky.
My personal physician does not like to talk about sex. He talks about it a bit, dislikes it when I use vulgar terms, and he shuts the discussions down pretty quickly like he is getting upset by the conversation.
He also refused to believe that straight sex was not risky for men in terms of HIV. I laid out the evidence for him, and he insisted that in the studies, transmission was still occurring, which is technically true by misses the point.
Yes only the expert physicians know what is going on and even they are coping out. Nancy Padian, who authored a study in the 1980’s showing how hard it was to transmit HIV from woman to man, came under a lot of fire for “downplaying the very serious risk to straight men from sex.” She had since issued apologies saying essentially that yes, straight sex is very risky for men.
It is all just PC, plus doctors haven’t studied it much, and also the media has gone along with the PC game.
